So, what's next? Occupy Golf Pro Shops, maybe? Occupy Piano Lesson Studios? Occupy CameraMan's Basement? Occupy Baillie's Guest Bathroom?
(...well, the last two I can understand. We all know they started the whole darned economic collapse when they cornered the market in ping-pong balls.)
I'm putting a lock on my refrigerator. I don't want to find these filthy people in the butter dish early some morning before I've even had my first shot of scotch. However, they are welcome to Occupy ST's Guest Bedroom. My MIL's due for a visit, and if she finds them in her quarters she'll squash their heads like rotten pumpkins. (A rather substantial woman, if you know what I mean. I took her to a military surplus sale one time and she didn't heed my advice to keep moving. When she stopped to look at her watch, someone auctioned her off as an M1A1 Abrams with low miles. Very awkward.)

Bwahahaha. There are going to be riots if Joe Six Pack can't buy a 32" TV for $14.95 because some filthy hippie is trying to lecture him on the evils of overconsumption. My bet is on Joe Six Pack.
The last Black Friday I attended, we wanted to buy Cozy Coupe for CameraBoy. My 4 foot, 11 inch wife went toe to toe with a big, mustachioed construction worker type for the last one. They both grabbed for it at the same time. He tried pulling it out of her hands. She pulled back and whacked him upside the head with it. He went flying into a group of thuggish looking teenagers stuffing things down their pants as fast as they could.
CameraBoy loves that Cozy Coupe so much. He must have put a thousand miles on it by now...The CCTV Blog.
"Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

I hope leftover turkey and green been casserole occupies my stomach on Black Friday.If we are not consistent, we lose credibility.
